Teknor Apex Co. has combined impact modification and color in concentrates for styrenic resins.
TekTuff concentrates increase impact strength by 45 to 90 percent while providing the same bright colors of untoughened styrenics, according to the Pawtucket, R.I., company.
Housewares, toys, disposables and packaging are among TekTuff's potential applications. Teknor offers the new materials in custom colors, including matches to existing colors.
Teknor Color Division technical manager John Wood says TekTuff is an addition to the firm's functional concentrate product line.
